For Schools - Base Tuono

Go to content


The tension between East and West of the world, the political, ideological and military opposition that marked an era and that brought Humanity to the brink of a devastating nuclear conflict. A defense system that contributed to peacekeeping. At Base Tuono we tell the Cold War. Nearby, at the Malga Zonta shrine, we illustrate the Resistance and at Forte Belvedere, on the Lavarone plateau, we tell the story of the Great War

The educational visit
It lasts about 1.30 hours and in the case of multiple classes, students are necessarily divided into multiple groups. In this case, the visit
occurs simultaneously, on different paths.

it is € 3.50 per student including visit to the nearby Malga Zonta shrine and illustration of the phenomenon of Resistance at general, regional and local level. Free access for teachers and carers.
